Google’s YouTube has modified its stream console with neat gestures to enable users to drag the video cursor to their most preferred chapter. Now, the Google streaming app lets you adjust its video chapter without dragging the cursor, but with your two fingers tapping on the screen simultaneously, you can make neat scene adjustments.
This double-tap gesture with two fingers is closely related to the previous scrubbing gesture YouTube recently enabled for its streaming services. This feature appears to be neatly enhanced that warranted YouTube users to debate the essence of this feature on Reddit.
It is worth noting that you can either choose to skip a video scene forward or backward with your two fingers double-tapping on your screen to move your cursor to the next in-video chapter. This gesture will only work if the video you are watching has a breakdown of chapters embedded by its creator.
The two-finger double-tap gesture on YouTube is a lucrative measure to control your streams to your most preferred scene. Techbooky suggests your YouTube player window should be on landscape mode for ease of video cursor navigation. Else, the compact portrait YouTube player window restricts the smooth two-finger double-tap gesture.
Per TechBooky’s consent about YouTube streaming gestures, you cannot skip a video for ten seconds when you double-tap with your two fingers. Instead, it moves your video cursor to the next chapter. Double-tapping with a single finger only pushes your cursor ten seconds ahead of the current scene, which has been an existing gesture on YouTube.
To move your cursor forward to the next chapter on YouTube, double-tap on the right side of the screen. You can as well move backward when you double-tap the left side of your screen. Remember, a single tap only moves your cursor ten seconds ahead.
Google is yet to release this feature whereby other tech experts have discovered adjusting video cursor by chapters on YouTube for Android beta v16.31.35 version. Per 9to5Google’s report, this double-tapping gesture is unrelated to other features Google’s YouTube recently developed.
